    I just have to add, I have a blog and I have googled my own photos (not looking for them) before... my blog even has photos of me in underwear ("before" shots for weight loss and such)... so I'm obviously not that concerned with things like that being discovered. These pics aren't attached to my real name though, so googling my full name won't make them appear. lol.

    I have photo's set to friends only - I trust the people I've befriended but I am thinking I might even lock them down to family only.

    I think stealing someone elses photo's is a mongrel's act TBH. My niece had a photo stolen from FB and photoshopped - the child was expelled from the school and the matter referred to the police.

    I have a picture of only me. I try to never have a photo of my girls as my profile picture.
    My settings are very tight. Friends only, and even then some friends are heavily restricted as to what they can see.
    I think I am searchable, able to be added and messaged.

    You can turn off Google indexing, so your profile and photos won't be added to Google search results.

    My profile is set to friends only and I'm not 'googeable'.

    I can be searched for within the site, but I only changed that recently because a friend was trying to add me but couldn't find me.

    My profile pic is a pic of me - It really doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    all but one photo album is friends only. i'm right now trying to figure out how to put that album on friends only. i'm searchable (wasn't for ages, changed it back cos a couple of friends had trouble trying to add me)
    my profile pic is me, but it's not obviously me.

    Private, private, private

    I'm not able to be found on google or a social network site

    I like it that way. My ex can't find me or find out anything about my new (and so much better!) life :-)

    The only thing you can see is my profile pic and my name.

    I keep everythiong else absolutely under lock and key. I go through friend requests seriously, if I don't know you, or you don't have a damn good reason for requesting me, I will not accept.

    I even have a seperate email address for my FB, so nobody can link my email address to my name in a forum, and then to my FB profile.
